About me and my therapy practice

I am a fully qualified counsellor.

Whatever life is throwing at you, rest assured, I can offer you a warm safe and confidential space for you to explore any thoughts or feelings, where you will feel genuinely listened to in a non judgmental way.

I offer long or short term counselling.  I use a person-centered approach and this means I am client led, the sessions are your sessions, directed by you but I am there to guide and walk a long side you. 

Sometimes our thoughts can be so muddled it can be difficult to make the right decisions, talking through these thoughts can help you process and see things more clearly and come to terms with any problems you maybe struggling with.

Practice description

I have spent many years working within Substance Misuse Services and worked closely alongside addicts, recovering addicts and their family and careers, whose lives also been affected by addiction. This has aided me to gain some great experience in this sector. I have spent some time working in Bereavement and am Cruse Trained. I have experience working with survivors of sexual violence. I have worked closely within Criminal Justice as an Appropriate Adult, I have learnt that sometimes in life we make the wrong choices and I know that change is possible.

Also I work as an In House Counsellor and I have a wide range of counselling experience.

My first session

For the first session I offer this at a discounted rate of £30.  During this first session I will ask the client about their current difficulties and what has brought them to counselling.  

Also use this time to find out about the clients general back ground and where they are in their lives at the present time .  Also find out about any previous therapy to see what worked and what was useful.

If we mutually decide to commence with therapy at this point arrange suitable times and days to go ahead with the sessions.
